Majority of these fats comes in the form of Phytosterols, which are anti-inflammatory and have many benefits for arthritis. In addition, avocados are rich in oleic acid, that helps the body create more HDL cholesterol, which in turn helps the bad LDL cholesterol to your liver so it can be broken down.
